4 Reasons Venice is a Great Place to Live

From Employment to Entertainment, Venice Is the Perfect Place for Both Work and Play.

Venice, California is most notably known for its beach and two-mile boardwalk. Known as a free-spirited neighborhood, it is characterized by urban shops, street performers, and colorful murals. With its vibrant atmosphere, there are many reasons why people love living in Venice.

Here are just a few:

The Neighborhood

Venice Beach is, by definition, upscale. The coastal neighborhood is statistically better for those who are interested in the arts, people in the LGBTQ+ community, families, and even single people who are looking to make a move on their own. In addition to its transit system, Venice is also an easy place to conquer on foot. Eclectic and tight-knit, this is a neighborhood where you are able to get to know your neighbors.

With an upscale neighborhood comes upscale apartments for rent and homes for purchase. If you were to rent a one-bedroom studio apartment, you would be looking to pay roughly $3,200 per month. If you were to buy a four-bedroom home, the price point would be roughly $3.2 million. The housing market is constantly changing, and things are being put on the market as quickly as they are being taken

The Boardwalk

The Boardwalk is a well-known tourist attraction, but residents also enjoy having it in their backyard. The sandy promenade is packed full of street performers and bodybuilders to watch and enjoy. Along this famous strip are plenty of surf and skate shops, restaurants, and street vendors. With Southern California’s beautiful weather, residents can pop over to the boardwalk after a day at their beach, shopping at their favorite shops and eating at their favorite eateries.


Venice is tech and entertainment heavy, so if you’re looking to land a job in either industry, Venice might be the perfect place for you. There are hubs in the residential neighborhood (aptly nicknamed Silicon Beach) for tech-savvy employees who work for companies such as Snapchat and Google. In addition to the boardwalk, entertain a crowd after applying to the Venice Arts Community. The Venice Arts Community has volunteer opportunities for people who are interested in the arts and want to give back to low-income communities as well as employment opportunities for positions such as photographers, videographers, and teachers.

Venice has several elementary schools that are top-rated based on academic performance and equity.

There is also Broadway Elementary School, which is also rated above average in academic achievements and equity.
